Parnesh is a software engineer by training with a PhD in medical imaging. He was involved with the Australian Imaging Biomarkers and Lifestyle (AIBL) study of ageing from it's inception and developed algorithms for the analysis of PiB PET data as part of his PhD. Carrying on with the AIBL project, he looked at concomitant cerebro-vascular disease in Alzheimer's disease and the interaction between white matter hyperintensities and micro bleeds as part of his post-doctoral work.
He also contributed to the development of the MILXView medical image analysis platform including the development of GPU accelerated algorithms as well as a cloud-computing platform for MILXView.
